Nomad Group renews Novotel contract with Accor

KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 11): The Nomad Group Bhd has renewed its contract with Accor, a leading global hotel operator, to manage its Novotel Kuala Lumpur City Centre (Novotel KLCC) hotel for another five years after the previous contract had expired.

"As hotel owners, we expect Novotel to achieve all around good performance, from the financial results to service standards and product quality," said Nomad Group chairman Datuk Mohd Nasir Ali in a statement dated Thursday.

"And it is based on the understanding that Accor is able to meet our expectations that we have agreed to award the management contract to Accor for another five years," he added.

According to the group, it had received various proposals from other established international hotel management companies to manage Novotel KLCC, but it had ultimately chosen to go back to Accor because of the latter's commitment to enhancing the hotel's performance.
